Visa consultation

You can consult with a visa specialist (a public legal expert) regarding matters such as extending your period of stay or changing your status of residence.
Online consultations available! (*International residents in Kyoto Prefecture only)

*Depending on the language there may be some cases where we are unable to provide an interpreter.

*For those living far away, we are also able to offer remote consultations via Zoom. For a remote consultation you can use your own personal computer or smartphone, and you will also need an internet connection.

*For those applying for a remote consultation, you will receive a link from the center after your application is processed. Please enter the meeting room via the link provided at least 5 minutes before the scheduled meeting time.
